Definitely a great way to understand important points of the history of Veliko Tarnovo and see its main atractions. The tour guide girl (Plami... sorry if I wrote wrongly) is very entusiastic and clear. She’s really excited about what she’s doing. I enjoyed!

We did the free city walk about Sreet art. It is an alternative walk which starts at 6 p.m.. It takes between 2 to 3 hours, and shows you some special corners of the city. Very interesting and original.
